University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our MPharm programme is taught through a series of case studies that apply what you learn to real life scenarios by bringing together the science of pharmacy with the needs of the patient. Placements in either community or hospital settings in each year of the course prepare you for work as a patient-focussed professional. You’ll benefit from inter-professional learning opportunities through close links with Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) and learning informed by research and clinical practice. You’ll undertake a research project alongside our researchers, who are leading the development of innovative biomedical products and pioneering new approaches to regenerative medicine and the treatment of cancer, asthma, diabetes and other chronic diseases. This course offers a guaranteed interview scheme with the Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) for students who want to pursue a degree in medicine. See the careers section on the webpage for more information about entry and eligibility criteria.
In Year 1, you will consider the nature of pharmacy as a combination of chemistry, medicine, professionalism and ethics and learn about a number of medical conditions. In Years 2 and 3 you will expand your knowledge of medical conditions and psychiatric disorders. In your final year at Brighton, you will complete a research project and choose from a large selection of optional modules.
